'Rabak' cyclist berates driver for not spotting him at zebra crossing

'Rabak' cyclist berates driver for not spotting him at zebra crossing

Here's something that happened in Fernvale you have to see.

According to this minute-long dashcam footage, on 2nd May 2021 at 8:51pm, a driver is seen turning left into Fernvale Link and stopping at the last minute when he realised that there was an oncoming cyclist at the zebra crossing.

Despite giving way to him, the cyclist glares at the driver, stops in the middle of the zebra crossing and gets off his bicycle to hurl vulgarities at the driver (we presume according to his aggressive gestures). The poor driver waits for him to finish before completing the left turn and continuing his journey.  

After watching this video, my heart goes out to the driver as I understand the pains of driving at night. Firstly, it's already dark so it's harder to notice pedestrians and cyclists from afar. Then, there's the issue of the cyclist not having a front light and wearing dark clothing, which makes him harder to spot. Lastly, even when the driver stopped in time, he still kena scolded.

Netizens have also taken to the comments to defend the driver and flame the cyclist:

With one guy even suggesting that the driver should have just continued driving:

What do you guys think? Is the driver in the wrong or is the cyclist just another 'entitled loudmouth'?

    Good Samaritan saves petrol attendant from a scheming S.O.B customer 👿👿👿

    Ladies & Gentleman, I would like to have your attention for a minute. As I was surfing the net to look out for newsworthy content (actually, I am looking out for goondu blueSG drivers) to share with everyone, I happened to chance upon the 'crook of the century' bullying a petrol attendant by insisting that he only asked to pump $15 worth of petrol instead of a full tank. Fortunately, Kelvin the Samaritan, who shared this piece of news on social media after, decided to help the petrol uncle attendant out. Here's the recap of the post. Kelvin the Samaritan paid for the petrol. I do not have much information about what had happened, but here's what I think went down:   Be gracious toward others. We don't really have a lot of information about the driver of the Toyota Altis, but what I have always been taught is to be gracious toward others. Your car will use the petrol inside the tank at the end of the day, so even if the petrol attendant pumped wrongly, you will still get to use it. If you think of it in another way, the petrol attendant also helped you to save more time going to the petrol kiosk later!  $15 petrol I just went to fuelkaki to check on our fuel price, Ron 95 is priced at $2.41 the cheapest. At max he can only have 6.5L of petrol, Let's say the Toyota Altis can have a fuel economy of 12km/L. So roughly after travelling 74km, he will go back and "full-teen" another petrol already. Please arh. Stop arh. Beat your backside then you know. Kudos to Kelvin And a huge shoutout to Kelvin who helped the petrol attendant in such a situation. You deserve a cup of coffee from us! If you see this, look for Uncle Koba.

    Tiny pothole wrecks a BMW 2 Series convertible

    TL:DR – A BMW 2 Series convertible goes over a small, unassuming pothole/manhole that causes its rear end to flip up, lose some parts from its undercarriage and swerve into another lane.   It's incredible how a small pothole/manhole can cause thousands of dollar's worth of damage to a car. Here's an example recorded on a video forwarded many times on WhatsApp groups. From the footage, we know that this incident happened on 11th April 2021, Sunday around 5pm. As to where this is, I have a feeling it might be somewhere around Woodlands. But, if you have any idea, do let me know, and I'll update the article accordingly to warn fellow road users where to avoid. Update: Thank you everyone who identified the location. It's in Yishun.   Poor BMW If you hit the pause button upon the point of impact, you'll notice that bits and pieces fall out from the undercarriage of the 2 Series. That’s as unlucky as this guy I reckon those parts are not going to be cheap to replace or repair. The pothole/manhole This image circulated together with the video. I'm assuming the cam car driver got out of the car and snapped a photo of the pothole/manhole.

    Caught an Audi A8 with zero road etiquette along Lower Delta Road

    I guess money can't buy proper road etiquette, can it? On 5th May 2021, a short video was posted on Facebook of an Audi A8 driver driving recklessly along Lower Delta Road. It's so bad that I even experienced some serious second-hand embarrassment from watching it.  For those of you who cannot stomach the video, I am going to provide a play-by-play description of the incident below. So, we start off with the camcar driver, who is innocently drives along the road and slows down when approaching a red light at a traffic junction. He stops behind a black Audi A8, which continues to inch forward past the white line with total disregard to the red light. The driver continues to try his luck and even attempts to turn right while there's traffic coming from both sides on the adjacent road. As if realising that there's no way the universe will let it turn right, the Audi suddenly reverses and almost hits the camcar.  Once the lights turn green, the Audi wastes no time zooming ahead without stopping at the right turn pocket. The driver positions the Audi dangerously near oncoming vehicles as if asking for an accident to happen.  The Audi edged so far into the lane with oncoming traffic that it even made a silver vehicle stop dead in its tracks to avoid a collision. To carry on forward, the silver car had to manoeuvre itself around the Audi in an awkward fashion. If you thought that was all, think again. There's more! When the Audi driver saw an empty pocket of space, it sped off to complete the right turn, but there were two oncoming vehicles that could have crashed into the Audi if they had gone any faster. Netizens quickly took to the comments to voice their opinions (with some speculating that the Audi driver is either drunk, high or does not have a driving license): Simplified translation: 'You have to wait for death if you want to reincarnate, what's the rush?' What do you guys think of this road menace?
